Darren provided advice on a family issue that involved elderly parents and their Enduring Power of Attorney.
His advice was valuable because my parents were in denial about elder abuse and he was able to provide a legal opinion as someone not directly involved in the mess.
09 Mar 2017
I was going guarantor for part of a house loan for my son. Kruse Legal went through all the legalities in a clear manner and outlined the responsibilities and pitfalls of what I was taking on. I felt that I was better informed and more aware as I signed the guarantor papers.
03 Mar 2017
I was impressed by Darren's attention to detail and felt confident that he had clearly outlined the risks and responsibilities regarding the guarantee I am providing for my daughters. I would be happy to recommend him to others and would seek his advice in future, should the need arise.
15 Feb 2017
We received advice on being a guarantor for our daughter's home loan. I found Darren to be very easy to talk to and understand the required information.
19 Jan 2017
Darren and his team at Kruse Legal are friendly and easy to deal with. I found their service professional and efficient and I now will be using them for all my legal matters.
16 Jan 2017
The work completed was done in a timely manner and provided with clear and concise details of the arrangements so we could understand clearly the documents to be executed.
12 Dec 2016
Darren supplied valuable assistance to Rae and I. It was explained to us in basic laymans language to enable us to fully understand our legal obligations in respect of us going as part guarantors for our son's home loan.
01 Dec 2016
We could not be happier with the service and the personal attention Darren gave to our family. Kruse staff are helpful, friendly and efficient too. All this at a most reasonable fee structure together with all the convenience of a local office! Great work Kruse Legal.

Preparation of last Will and Testament for elderly relative. This involved a personal visit by Darren Kruse to the nursing home and helpful advice to the Executors.
09 Nov 2016
Updated Wills and Power of Attorney, etc. We expected to see the same person to complete our business but we saw a different person for the final visit ... very competent but it would have been appreciated to know in advance.
31 Oct 2016
Will done through online survey, minor changes made through email and phone communication, then went in for signing. Only issue was that there was a delay in sending through the drafted Will for review, had to email and follow up where it was up to but then was called about it shortly after.

The presentation of our mother's Will to the Probate Court. This was an exacting procedure which seemed pedantic and clumsily slow. Many millions of dollars must be tied up by this process and surely must be an inhibiting 'red tape' influence on the health of the State's economy. This is not to suggest that any problems were caused by Kruse Legal who handled the cumbersome procedure with competence and alacrity.
28 Sep 2016
During the process of purchasing a property through my self managed super fund, I required a limited recourse loan, resulting in numerous documents that required reviewing and signing with a solicitor. Darren was very helpful, I left the documents with him to view for a couple of days (at the last minute) then during my meeting with him, he explained and signed everything. He also helped me find an accountant who signed some additional paperwork (which I had a lot of trouble finding).
26 Sep 2016
I required a legal certificate in relation to going guarantor for someone else's loan ...................

23 Nov 2015
I was recommended the firm by a friend and have been impressed with the service received. I engaged Kruse to write my Will which was a simple process, but also acquired a great deal of further knowledge which was offered at no charge with regards to Family Law issues.
06 Oct 2015

Enduring Power of Attorney and Advanced Medical Directive
07 Jul 2014
I attended Kruse Legal with my husband in view of finally legalising our Wills, Enduring Power of Attorneys and Enduring Power of Guardianship. We were most impressed with Darrens grasp on gathering the information required and individualising our documents to satisfy our special and slightly complex requirements.
We appreciated the set fee for service and dispite the fact that our requirements were based on our individual needs (and as such little more complex than most) there was no alteration to the quote.
04 Jul 2014
Wills, powers of attorney and medical preferences all completed quickly and beautifully worded. We could not have wanted for a better service. Thank you.

Kruse Legal assisted my Grandmother with her Will and Enduring Power of Attorney. As the executor of her estate I was then assisted with the granting of Probate. Kruse Legal provided a caring, professional service. I received ongoing advice and support regarding my responsibilities as Executor which made things less stressful for me. The service I received was great value for money. I would highly recommend Kruse Legal.

Darren prepared wills, enduring power of attorney & enduring power of guardianship (medical wishes) for my wife and I. Darren provided very thorough, professional and prompt advice for a reasonable fee. Our wills were prepared within 1 week of our meeting, and signed 5 days before we left on a holiday away from our children, we had been "putting it off" but were grateful that it could be sorted out before we left. Wills may be straight forward for lawyers, but Darren was happy to spend the time to explain things and answer any of our questions.
06 Sep 2013
We used Kruse Legal for a family law (child custody) issue and were very happy with the service and outcome. Darren was able to answer any questions we had, and reassured us throughout what was a very emotional and difficult time. Having previously used other law firms for the same issue, we noticed how much more personal the service at Kruse Legal is, and we were also happy with the lower fees charged. We will continue to recommend Kruse Legal to any of our friends needing a lawyer.

We were wanting information regarding liability after a traffic accident and whilst Kruse Legal did not deal in this type of law, we were able to get sound advice over the phone and a referral to someone who dealt in traffic law. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kruse Legal to others.
